Local Marine Resource Monitoring

We believe community engagement, participation and empowerment are key to successful adaptation actions at the local level. We are currently invovled with the development of a novelmarine monitoring toolkit with the participation of community resource monitors to inform local action and management. It has been piloted in North Efate, Vanuatu to allow communities to take ownership of monitoring their marine resources.

Marine Report 2016

OceansWatch (OW) has been coming to Vanuatu since 2008 and has carried out work throughout the country from Efate, Malekula, Epi to Espirito Santo to Gaua and Vanua Lava. Primarily work has been carried out in the more isolated communities where other Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have not been able to access. During the 2016 expedition the villages of Dolav, Ontar and Qetegaveg on Gaua were revisited by two members of the team who visited the communities in 2015 with two additional members.
